COPENHAGEN - While it's easy to spend a fortune in Copenhagen, one of Europe's most expensive cities, the Danish capital also has a lot to offer for travellers on a tight budget.
The city centre is compact enough that you can get around on foot, enjoying the top sights and walking in the footsteps of fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen — without spending a single krone.
Danes are a relaxed bunch and shopkeepers won't sneer at you for inspecting their goods without buying anything. There's no place for window shopping in Copenhagen like Stroeget, the artery that runs from City Hall square to the picturesque harbour of Nyhavn. Skip the souvenir shops with plastic Viking helmets (history check: real Viking helmets didn't have horns) and explore the internationally acclaimed world of Danish design, from the hand-painted china at Royal Copenhagen to the cutting-edge fashion boutiques with clothes from homegrown designers like Noir, Munthe plus Simonsen, Day Birger et Mikkelsen and Baum und Pferdgarten. If you visit in December, don't miss the Yuletide markets with Christmastime treats at Hoejbro Plads or Nyhavn.
